1 42 NSW Recreational SALTwater Fishing Guide n 2011 Knots and Rigs KNOTS and RIGS Palomar knot. The palomar knot is quick to tie and forms a strong knot. It is a general-purpose connection used in joining fishing lines to swivels, snaps, hooks and artificial lures. The double wrap provides a protective cushion for added strength. 1. Double the line and form a loop about 10cms long. Pass it through the eye of the hook. 1. Thread line through eye. 2. Form an overhand knot on the eye of the hook. 2. Make this configuration. 3. Extend the loop and pass it over the hook. 3. Begin wrapping loop C with tag A. 4. Moisten the knot before pulling tight. Trim the tag when complete. Uni knot or grinner knot. This is an excellent knot for connecting hooks and swivels to the end of fishing lines. A very dependable knot even for deep sea fishing. Use more wraps with lighter line, less with heavier line. It can also be used to attach your fishing line to your reel by passing the line around the back of the spool rather than through the eye of the hook. C B A 5. Moisten the line and form a knot by pulling tag A against loop C. 6. As you continue to pull on the tag all of the spirals in the tag are transferred to the loop D. C D D A B C A 7. This forms a slipping knot and loop. C A D 4. Continue wrapping four to six times. C 8. The loop C disappears as the knot slides down onto the eye.

2 Perfection loop. Of many loops used to attach flies and lures, the perfection loop is favoured because it lays relatively straight and does not point out to the side. It is tricky to tie so follow the instructions carefully. 43 Knots and Rigs 1. Make a simple overhand knot in the leader and thread the tag through the eye of the lure or fly. 2. Pass the tag back through the overhand knot alongside the other strand. 3. Now bend the tag back so it goes back up through the knot as shown. The sequence is over, over, under, over, under. 4. Moisten the knot before pulling tight. Trim the tag. NSW Recreational SALTwater Fishing Guide n 2011

3 44 Double uni knot. This is a useful knot for joining two lines. NSW Recreational SALTwater Fishing Guide n 2011 Knots and Rigs 1. Overlap the lines to be joined then encircle one line with the tag of the other. 4. Do the same with the other line so the knot in each line is tied around the other. 2. Wrap the double strand inside the formed loop. 5. Moisten the line and tighten each knot in turn. 3. Make four wraps in all. 6. Draw the knots together, tighten once more, then trim the tags.

4 Albright knot. This is a particularly useful knot for joining braid to a nylon leader Double the end of a heavier monofilament leader and thread your lighter line through and around the loop. 2. Wrap down the loop with the lighter line. 3. Make five wraps down and work back wrapping over the originals. Knots and Rigs 4. After making five wraps in each direction thread the tag back through the loop. 5. Use gentle pressure on both leaders and tags to partially close the knot. 6. As the knot tightens let both tags go, moisten the knot and use firm pressure on line against leader. 7. Finally, close the knot and trim the tags. NSW Recreational SALTwater Fishing Guide n 2011

5 46 NSW Recreational SALTwater Fishing Guide n 2011 Knots and Rigs Spider Hitch. This knot retains around 80 percent of monofilament line strength but only percent in braid lines. While not as strong as a Bimini or Plait, it is quick, easy to tie and provides a double strand to attach terminals and leaders Determine your double or end loop size, twist a second loop just above the tag end and hold between left thumb and forefinger. 2. Wind the double around your thumb 3. Make four or five complete wraps Pass the loop in the double through the second loop. 5. Pull gently on the double until all loops slide from your thumb (pinch thumb and finger firmly to disengage loops one at a time). 6. Moisten the loops and tension all four strands equally as the knot is pulled tight

6 Dropper loop. This is a loop which can be used to attach a hook or leader anywhere along a length of line Make a loop where the dropper is to be. Then cross the main line to form a second smaller loop Knots and Rigs 2. Twist the smaller loop from both ends but alternate the twisting and holding between hands. 3. Make six complete twists (braid line) or four complete twists (monofilament). Then thread the larger loop through the middle of the smaller loop you have twisted & 5. Slip the knot around something solid. Moisten the knot before pulling tight. Take care not to shear off either side. The finished knot will be strong enough for most fishing needs. NSW Recreational SALTwater Fishing Guide n 2011

7 48 Cats paw. This is a useful knot to attach a double to a swivel. NSW Recreational SALTwater Fishing Guide n 2011 Knots and Rigs Pass the loop end of a double through the eye of a snap swivel and then pass the swivel through the loop. 2. Fold the loop end of the double back against the standing part of the loop. 3. Rotate the swivel through the central loop thus formed. 4. Depending on the flexibility and thickness of the line, repeat the rotation between three to six times. 5. Moisten the knot before gently pulling tight to close.

8 Running sinker rigs. A running sinker is not fixed but slides along the line until it reaches a stop or the hook. They are used where it is an advantage to let fish pick up bait without feeling the weight of a sinker. 1. The simplest rig features a small ball sinker running to the hook but there is no provision for a heavier leader. 2. A conventional running sinker features a swivel or ring as a sinker stop above the hook and allows a leader to be tied on below the swivel or ring. 3. The EzyRig illustrated is threaded on to line just like a sinker but the clip allows light sinkers to be swapped for heavier and vice versa. 49 Knots and Rigs Fixed sinker rigs. A simple bottom fishing rig is the basic fixed Paternoster rig. It consists of a sinker tied or looped on to the very end of the line with one or more hooks attached above the sinker at various intervals using twisted dropper loops so they stand away from the main line and don t tangle. The use of a dropper loop to attach hooks is an easy rig to prepare and strong enough for most fishing situations. Using a swivel or ring as a tie off point results in the strongest possible rig of this type and is preferred by many fishers. NSW Recreational SALTwater Fishing Guide n 2011

9 50 NSW Recreational SALTwater Fishing Guide n 2011 Knots and Rigs Running Floats - Bobby Cork Rig. Running floats such as a bobby cork rig have a hole through their centres just like a running sinker. In effect, they are used to present bait at a deeper depth than the length of drop which can be cast using a fixed float. When casting out the baited hooks sink to the depth pre-determined by the position of the lower ball or bean sinker on the line, whether that is 2 metres or 10 metres and below the top stopper after casting The Waggler Float. Waggler floats are by far the most diverse float design and can be used for almost all forms of fishing. The straight design of wagglers provides good buoyancy and excellent visibility at their tip. Depending on the situation a waggler can be fixed in one spot or left free to slide up and down the line. Straight wagglers as shown here are fixed to the line with two locking shot. Extra shot is added down the line for balance so that only the tip will appear above the surface. Fixed Stem Floats. Stem floats consist of a thin stem with a bulbous body for added buoyancy. Most have a plastic or rubber sleeve which positions over the top of the stem to fix the float in position on the line. Steps to follow in rigging a fixed stem float are: Remove the sleeve from the stem and pass the line through it and then through the line guide at the stem base. When the required length of line has been passed through the guides, slide the sleeve back into position to fix the float on the line. With the float in position, tie on the hook and weight the line with enough split shot to keep it in an upright position in the water.

10 Common saltwater baits. Using fresh, natural bait is one of the easiest ways to ensure you can catch fish. Bait should be secured on a hook but with sufficient point exposed to hook fish. Prawns 51 Knots and Rigs A B Pass the hook right up through the bend in the tail as shown in (A) or hook through the tail (B). Saltwater Nippers Saltwater Nippers are best when hooked through the tail. Weed Weed can be used by forming a simple snell on the hook shank, threading the weed through the loop and braiding it down the shank. Secure by tying around the curve of the hook.
